drag'n'drop will "copy" if the files move from a different mount point, say
/home/username/Documents and /home/username/Downloads are different mount
points, dragging a file from Downloads to Documents will copy it. else
while moving inside the same mount point it will "move" the file, say you
move a file from /home/username to /home/username/Desktop, and both are in
the same mount point, then it will move it.
